Creative Agency is a creative communication, strategy and engagement firm.

We help clients who are working on issues of urban change and empowerment connect with their communities and in creative ways.

Who is Creative Agency?

Mia Scharphie, founder of Creative Agency, is a designer, do-er and big-picture thinker. She helps mission-driven, community-oriented people and organizations realize their goals beyond their expectations (and sometimes wildest dreams.) She is known for empowering people and organizations to achieve the future they envision for themselves.

She designs effective, engaging, appealing, creative, fun, customized, processes, programs, products, and experiences and shares the stories in a catchy, accessible, fun, compelling way.

A self-described ‘social designer,’ she brings over ten years of experience synthesizing design with research, facilitation and community building to Creative Agency, serving clients such as national affordable housing nonprofit Enterprise Community Partners and the Harvard Business School. Mia has been a resident at the Harvard Innovation Lab and a Research Fellow at Northeastern University and has degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Brown University. She sits on the Equity Roundtable of the Boston Society of Architects.
